  • A World Ethos for Global Business?

    The 5th Annual Humanistic Management Conference  A World Ethos for Global Business? Cosmopolitan Responsibilities of Management 05 - 06 October 2017 Weltethos-Institut, University of Tuebingen We have a world economy but no world government; nor can we expect, at least in the foreseeable future, a system of decentralized global governance with sufficient sanctioning powers to enforce legal mandates for business worldwide. For this reason alone, the ethical dimension of business cannot be entrusted solely to the law. Globalized markets would seem to require an underlying ‘ethos’, present to some degree the world over: a common spirit of legitimate, just, and fair business practice substantiated by shared experience. As managers and economic decision-makers, however, are increasingly operating within multi-cultural settings with divergent social customs and conventions, no ‘one size fits all’ approach will do. While on the one hand the growing need for transnational cooperation accentuates the call for a shared ‘world ethos’ for the global business community, on the other hand any proposal in that direction must make room for the need for the diversity and divergence of culture and civilization. At the fifth annual Humanistic Management Conference, to be held at the University of Tuebingen’s Weltethos-Institut, we aim to address this dual need by investigating from various cultural perspectives: 1) how a world ethos for global business  could be variously articulated and promoted (‘theory’); 2)  the extent to which such an ethos is already present in contemporary globalized business (‘practice’); and 3) what civil society around the world can do to support the efforts of  (esp. multinational) corporations in this direction (‚policy’).

The Australia and New Zealand Chapter (ANZ) of the Humanistic Management Network held our May 2015 workshop co-hosted with the Leadership Lab at the University of Adelaide in South Australia on the 7th of May 2015.

If you see a committee forming do you back away quietly or rush to the fore to be counted in for a say? We have committees for just about everything, most designed to bring in diverse opinions and generate informed discussion to matters that have collective impact. Why then are committees so often dysfunctional, or impotent or at worse acrimonious?

At the next HMN-LL event we explore committees and ask if playing hard and playing fair are mutually exclusive or if it is personal politics and hidden agendas that control who wins? We look at this issue through the lens of sports associations and ask why is it that often committees with recreational agendas have deep political problems and poor collective engagement. From our discussions and experiences with these groups we ask, what can we learn from this which can help our committees in business and community organisations?

In May we have the pleasure of welcoming the insights from the wonderful Dr Meera Verma, who has battled diverse committees, boards and executive panels for many years. An astute business woman, Meera was the winner of Zaffyre International Private & Corporate Sector Award in the 2006 Telstra Business Womens' Awards. In 2007 she won the Bioinnovation SA leadership award.

This two day event marks the closing block of the first time this course has been offered at the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland.

The theme of Impact Investing has gained substantial momentum in both, finance and social entrepreneurship communities over recent years. In addition student demand for course offers as well as supervision of theses on Impact Investing has risen steeply. For the two day closing session of this course we have organized a conference focused on the exchange with Impact Investing practitioners taking place in Zurich and St. Gallen. We will welcome speakers from the Values Based Investing offer of UBS, LGT's Venture Philantropy arm as well as Impact Investing Latin America, (IILA) from Sao Paulo, Brazil.

A

mong the many false dichotomies fostered by the continuing debates surrounding higher education, one that I find especially disconcerting is that which pits the professional against the personal. While it is expressed in a variety of ways, it boils down to this: Either you believe the purpose of going to college is to be able to secure a (preferably high-paying) job, or you think there is something more intrinsically valuable to be gained from the years spent earning a degree. My question is: When did these become mutually exclusive?

The Australia and New Zealand Chapter (ANZ) of the Humanistic Management Network invites you to our April 2015 workshop co-hosted with the Leadership Lab at the University of Adelaide in South Australia.

The topic on April 1st 2015 is: "Community at Work: Come into my Life"

What does it mean to live fully?  Instead of have different parts of our lives quarantined as discreet domains, could we view our lives as a complex extended community?  Is it possible to achieve a level of social cohesion in organisations where organisational members are seen as full and legitimate participants in a social community growing from the business? 
 
In April we suggest you don’t have to leave your community at the door when you come to the office.  A community spirit built on equity and respect can transform interpersonal relationships and workplace experiences to be a source of strength and resilience for a fuller life journey.

You can find a summary of the event as well as the invitation to the event attached below.
